Bio and Links
Bio Photo A Middle Tennessean happy to keep an eye out for relatives of others, my hobby is searching for interesting grave shelters in small, rural cemeteries. Gravehouses, shelters, tents, rock tombs and cairns; they're all vanishing quickly, so will take them where I can find them, and appreciate your suggestions. The motherlode of rock tents/combs, the Cumberland Plateau and Highland Rim, are my favorite stomping grounds.

Thanks to all of you who have added photos! I'm willing to fill photo requests in out-of-the-way places, as long as you're not in a hurry. If corrections are needed to memorials I've added, or if you would like additional information, please leave a message here or send email to my address.

You are welcome to use my photos for non-commercial purposes without obtaining my prior permission, as long as their use is within the rules and guidelines of, and provided the ownership source is clearly stated each time.

I'm not directly related to many people for whom I've created memorials, so please feel free to ask for a transfer. If I have made a mistake on a memorial, and you can shed light on the subject, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Am always on the lookout for Berry (Hulme, Wiltshire, Vowell, Malone, Jefferson), Carothers (Turner, Potts, Nevins, Jordan, Whitsitt, Menees), Wilkerson (King, Barnes, Dowdy, Goodwin, Buchanan) and Rucker (all of the above, plus Bumpass, Morton, and everyone else in TN, KY, and VA).

It's a delight to be part of the awesome assembly that is Find A Grave!

RE: Savannah Steel(e) at Mt Olivet
Sorry, I didn't see his name on first read thru. I did spot it after I sent you the message. I don't know were Edward is buried. If I ever locate him I will send you an edit.

Thanks, Jerry

Mary Nolen Brown Sheffield in Fla Memorial
Hi Harriet;

I, too, have a full subscription to; however, I haven't been ' keen' in obtaining obituary information if they live out of state, as in the case of Mary Nolen Brown Sheffield. Were you able to obtain her Florida obituary?

If so, I am interested in having a copy please and thank you.

Thank You!

Hi Harriet;

Awesome work! You were able to link family members together. It aids in finding the family; as her mother and father, she remarried. Thank You very much for all that you do here on Find a Grave. It's people like you that help other's find their missing links. It was my pleasure to help in this.

Thank You.

RE: Caplingers
Thank you Harriet. That will be fine.

I do my best to find accurate data, and to put it where others can use it as an aid to the family.

There are several delayed birth certificates for the DeKalb Caplinger families. To see as many as I did for one family was surprising, usually there are a few, but not a lot of them that will take advantage of that document. Much of the information that I have added today and part of yesterday for them, has been from these delayed certificates, and also from the death indexes for the place of death. These are supposed to be accurate, so I trust the data.

And from some of the death certificates, which can be a trying situation to figure out at times, as you have to depend on the person who gave the information, and it is not always as accurate.

Thank you again.
